Fresh alpine air, panoramic mountain views and an authentic old West culture guarantee an incredible adventure for honeymooners during summer or winter in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Adventure seekers have long known Jackson Hole as a hub for outdoor activities, but its growing reputation among foodies might be surprising. The small town is overflowing with options that range from comfort food staples to chic international offerings.
These are some of our favorite spots for both casual mornings and romantic evenings:
Traveling to Jackson Hole
Jackson Hole Airport (JAC) is a short 20-minute drive to the Jackson Town Square. If you can, book your seat on the right side of the airplane to get an incredible view of the Tetons as you fly in.
Driving to Jackson Hole
Yellowstone National Park borders Jackson Hole on the North so plan accordingly if you are intending on driving from that direction. If you do choose to come that way it will be a slow (albeit scenic) journey through Yellowstone.
When to visit Jackson Hole
If you arrive on a weekend between the third weekend in December and the third week in March—between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.— expect to be greeted at baggage claim by the Howdy Pardners. Dressed like the cowboys and cowgirls who settled this valley in the early 1900’s the Howdy Pardners are enthusiastic ambassadors of the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce.
What should I keep in mind when traveling to Jackson Hole?
The area’s high elevation, rugged terrain, and relatively low humidity can create major fluctuations in temperature, precipitation, and wind in a short period of time. Avoid risk by paying close attention to the weather forecast before setting out for the day.
Wait, isn’t the town called “Jackson?”
Correct! Although it is widely known as “Jackson Hole,” the town itself is actually just “Jackson.” “Jackson Hole” refers to the entire valley that rests at the base of the Tetons, extending from Hoback to Moran north to south, and Jackson to Wilson east to west.
